Hi, a friend of mine suggested that I register with you.  I am 53 years old and having trouble with work so he has suggested that I get a diagnosis.  I would rather go privateely as I am not confident going through my GP, although he is very good.  I have looked on the diagnostic post code finder thingy but it hasn't come up with anything.  I live in Suffolk.  Does anyone have any suggestions please?

Getting an autism diagnosis

I'm 51 and undecided as to whether I need a diagnosis. I'm 100% sure after everything I've read etc. I think getting a diagnosis would just be for other people, especially family members.
